Free and Reduced Meals

If your total household income is within the limits set by the federal government, you may be eligible for either free or reduced-price school meals. If you qualify for free or reduced-price meals, you may also be eligible for food assistance benefits from the State of Iowa, Department of Human Services (DHS).

A new eligibility application must be completed and submitted each school year.

Free and reduced price meal eligibility applications for each new school year will become available in late July. You can apply for eligibility through the online application or by filling out a paper application online. An application for free and reduced meals can also be found at the district website under free and reduced meal eligibility. Applications are also available at orientation, from building secretaries, and/or at the central office. If you have questions about free and reduced meals or the application process, please contact the Nutrition Services Assistant at (515) 965-9604 x50811 or email. For information about state food assistance benefits, contact 1-877-937-3663, or apply online.
